Today Egypt is one of the most favorite places of recreation for the citizens of Russia.

Was time to leave, but many are now interested to learn something new about our beautiful Black sea. Here are some facts.
The black sea is inhabited by 2500 species of animals.

The most dangerous fish in the depths of the black sea – the sea dragon.
